Redden State Forest Loop, Delaware Seashore State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"An easy walk through a tract of Delaware’s largest state forest in the heart of loblolly pine country. A good hike for exploring the natural and cultural history of a relatively new wild and managed forest. Early in the 1900s, Redden State Forest was not a forest at all. Until the 1930s, the 1,767 acres of woodlands here were primarily open fields and meadows separated by hedgerows —a quail-hunting retreat for the executives of the Pennsylvania Rail- road Company. All the forest growth, both natural and managed, has occurred since then.

A walk through the forest’s natural groves of mixed hardwoods and its planted and harvested stands of loblolly pine reveals the young woodland’s many layers of human and natural history. Special considerations: State forest lands are open to hunting during the fall and winter seasons. The trail is unmarked but easy to follow."
